Discover Canterbury: Recent additions

Every week the team at Digital Content upload material including photographs onto Canterbury Stories. I thought it would be fun to show off some of the recent additions added to our collections over the last few months. Have a look below and I promise it will be worthwhile!

This image from the 1974 Commonwealth Games was taken by Graeme Farrant who has contributed a collection of his photographs of Christchurch events from the 1970s.
